Further studies are necessary to determine whether other Ca 2+ signaling molecules, such as protein kinase C, calmodulin kinases, and cytoskeletal proteins, also participate in the MFN2-mediated immune function of T cells.
In our experiment, 4 myo-inositol-1-phosphate synthase genes and 3 calmodulin genes participated in the resistance to low temperature stress, and the expression of calmodulin genes continued to increase during low temperature treatment.

The benzothiazoles also have immuno-suppressive, antiviral [18,19], and calmodulin (CaM) antagonists [20] activities.
This model also predicts that changes in the calcium amplitude will strongly determine the activation of calmodulin, with a 5-fold increase in calcium amplitude causing an almost 1000-fold increase in active calmodulin (Gamble and Koch, 1987).
PMCAs are regulated by calmodulin, a calcium-activated protein with multiple targets, as well as other mechanisms giving stringent local control to the activation of the PMCA.

The precise control of this movement relies on the direct physical interaction between a calcium channel protein ryanodine receptor (RYR), and a calcium-sensing protein called calmodulin.
